a conversion of interest or views between the president and john boehner. i'm not sure that i see it yet. the president said you have to go to the clinton area, 36% top marginal rate. and you said a few loopholes that's fine but not the real battle we should be undertaking. am i correct? >> now boehner we're back to where we were before the election in some respects. there is a significant core of the republican party that simply will not raise taxes under any sixths. they will not raise rates. they still feel that they are pledged to grover norquist, maybe not to the american people. not to the constitution, but to grover norquist. therefore they're not going to go along--even if boehner wants them to go along. both sides the president and democrats on one side, boehner and the republicans are basically maneuvering for bargaining position for what is going to be a long-term negotiation. >> eliot: they're just shadow boxing, i think that's exactly right. i wonder and i'm trying to assess--i have no knowledge of what goes on inside the republican party but i'm trying to discern if boehner
that confidence can build as we reach our solution. >> eliot: for their part republicans boehner and mc mcconnell agreed that that some sort of agreement was possible. >> we should show our seriousness. we've put revenue on the payable.. >> eliot: earlier this week president obama met with labor and business leaderrers to get their insights opposite the fiscal cliff. this afternoon he also met with leaders of civic organizations and other outside groups it on theish. among them my first guest marc morial. welcome. >> thank you eliot. >> it was a great meeting. most of us were very interested in middle income, working income, and poor americans. the president i felt, was in a great mood. he was optimistic that some compromise could be reached some budget deal could be reached, and he was very firm in i think in understanding that the election gives him i think more authority and a very strong hand to do something that is consistent with his principles, but also in the best interest of all americans. for our point for our part we emphasize the need for there to be the continuation of tax cut
